Beyond The Catskills

I've been to college.
I understand well the physics of flypaper,
and other vast amorphous concepts.

I know how to sing "Hey Jude" backwards,
while carrying spiders down fire escape ladders.
I'm irreplaceable...patiently waiting next door.

Let's ban hide and seek. Let's face jail time.
Let's cause intense emotional distress.
Let's be quirky. Let's tiptoe together towards infinity.

-- Scott H. Stoller

Lives Cut Short by Depression
A brief introduction to infinity
Tenn. law bans posting images that "cause emotional distress"

Just found my way here via the Asinine poetry site. Love the way these poems are constructed, both surreal and meaningful. This is my favourite one so far.
